Greens are the latest nail craze to do the round on the beauty circuit and the lovely Natalya @ FilthyGorgeousMakeup recently tried out 'Wildlife' from the Going Green Collection!
She describes Wildlife as, 'a very unique colour...in the bottle it looks like a golden olive green with a pink duochrome effect' and goes on to say 'I was surprised by the way it came to life on my nails. Depending on which way you look at it the colours transition from a dark muddy green, through gold, to a bright pearlescent pink'
If you're interested in trying green nails for yourself, but are a little hesitant then opt for Wildlife - it's unusual, quirky and gives your nails a beautiful multi-dimensional look.
Nubar's eco-friendly credentials lend themselves nicely to this nail trend and if you want your nail polish to be green in colour as well as formula then look no further...

Natalya @ FilthyGorgeousMakeup recently reviewed Vital from the Modern Matte Collection and was excited to try out this season's hotly debated matte nails trend by saying, "...it is something new and fun to try, and a great excuse to buy more polishes!"
Natalya goes on to describe the polish as, "...very richly pigmented and is opaque after just one coat...the best thing about it was the drying time. It was dry to the touch within a matter of seconds and set in a couple of minutes, which is great for me as I am always doing my nails in a rush!"
And for anyone who is concerned that matte polish will look dirty or tired on the nails, Natalya clears this up by saying, "Even though the finish is matte it did not look dull as it has tiny flecks of shimmer to give it dimension"
Don't forget - Nubar also make a fantastic matte top coat called 'V For Men' which will strengthen and increase the longevity of the polish, whilst retaining the high-fashion finish!
Available here for £6.55

Nubar's recent launch of the Going Green Collection is a definite nod to their eco-friendly credentials. With 6 exciting green shades and finishes in creme, shimmer, holographic & duochrome, there's something for everyone in this collection.
Green nails had a strong presence on the A/W 09 catwalks in New York, London and Milan so they're looking to be one of this season's huge nail trends. And seeing as Scarlett Johansson is a fan of the green look, you can't go wrong with this little lot.

Rewnowned beauty blogger, Lollipop26 recently reviewed Prevail from the Nubar Modern Matte Collection:
She describes it as, 'a gorgeous deep purple colour with a pink gold running through it' and commented on how it applies in one coat and dries extremely quickly.
However, as with all trends, the matte nail is not for everybody so if you love the colours in the Modern Matte Collection but don't think a matte finish is for you, then try adding a topcoat to the polish to bring out the intricate veining and vibrancy - perfect for making your nails look multi-dimensional.
A great choice for two looks in one bottle!

Helen at The Nail Buff recently tested out two great summery polishes from the Coral Collection & the Bouquet Collection.
First up is Camelot Blossom:
She says, 'This is such a gorgeous red-pink coral which applied really well with zero streaks. I had it on for over three whole days without even the slightest chip - usually I get a chip or two after a few hours so I'm impressed by this! This one applied well and looked great after two coats.'
Second up is Red Sea Coral:
She says, This a beautiful soft pinky coral... I didn't find the colour as strong though, and had to apply three coats before I was happy with it'
Both the Coral & Bouquet Collections contain some gorgeous shades to see you through the end of summer and the September sunshine, so be sure to check them out.

Hollywood's Golden Girl is a huge advocate of the navy blue trend that's doing the rounds on the celebrity circuit at the moment. Navy blue is a great option for an alternative nail look - it screams sophistication whilst simultaneously providing the cool-factor. Not as extreme as black, wearing navy on your nails adds an instant sense of chic and style to any outfit... plus if it's good enough for Lauren, it's good enough for us!
Nubar's new collection Twilight features a gorgeous navy polish, with all the extra benefits you've come to expect from Nubar polish. Try it out and you can be every inch as stylish as LC.

Helen at The Nail Buff recently tried out Vital - the deep wine shade from the new Modern Matte Collection - which created a sophisticated and unique effect on her nails.
She clears up a common misconception about matte polish by saying, "I'm actually surprised by how much I like it - the colour is vibrant enough to not make my nails look dull - I actually think it looks sophisticated and I really like the effect."
The full review is available on The Nail Buff
The Vital shade and the rest of the Modern Matte Collection are now available here at beautyshed.co.uk
WhoWhatWear's prediction of Nubar Green Tea as the perfect nail polish choice for Scarlett Johansson was spot-on.The star has been a fan of the range ever since manicurist to the stars Jenna Hipp showed her the products, and she has been seen sporting various colours ever since. Ms Johansson is also sure to be an advocate of Nubar's eco-friendly and cruelty free ethos, given her charitable good works of late.
According to the editors:
Though this shade might not seem like an obvious choice, we think it works for a number of reasons. First of all, green polish had serious presence on the fall runways (jade at Chanel, forest at Vena Cava). Secondly, we imagine that Johansson would approve of nubar's cruelty-free vegan formulas. Finally, the quirky color is just the sort of slightly subversive subtle touch we've come to expect from the actress"
Green Tea is part of Nubar's staple collection and reflects the green trend as seen on the Autumn/Winter 2009 catwalks. Available here from beautyshed.co.uk.
